To be wild is not to be crazy or psychotic. True wildness is a love of nature, a delight in silence, a voice free to say spontaneous things, and an exuberant curiosity in the face of the unknown.
— Robert Bly

7 Days of Transformation

Join us for a 7-day, full immersion into the 5 Elements and a Heart Centered Transformation at Villa Sumaya, a stunning boutique hotel on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.  

Designed for those seeking deep healing, transformation, and an introduction to the elemental teachings of Shamanic Breathwork®, this highly experiential retreat will be a deep dive into reconnecting with your inner Wild:ness, a place of authentic expression - embracing all we encounter with loving compassion.  

Sami, along with carefully selected co-facilitators, will guide you to dream a new reality, to face your shadows and celebrate your true wildest expression in the world through fully embodying each of the 5 Elements, the gifts of their teachings, and journeying through Shamanic Breathwork to Breathe Yourself Wild! 

Sami is a truly shamanic being. She created such a safe space that allowed me to be present with my experience and feel as supported as I needed. She was a pivotal part of one of my most intense breathwork experiences and she has left a lasting imprint in my psyche and heart. Anyone that works with Sami will come away from the experience with a touch of medicine and magic.
